— Officials at the National 9/11 Memorial in New York say that after years of delays, a museum dedicated to victims of the terror attack will open to the public in mid-May.

Memorial foundation president Joe Daniels said Friday that the cavernous, underground museum at the World Trade Center is now in its final months of construction.

Tickets will go on sale in March.

The board that oversees the museum and memorial set an admission charge this week of $24 for most adults.

That is similar to the suggested donation to enter other New York City museums. But some critics say it is too high a price for the average family.

Daniels says the museum might consider charging less if there were federal funding for operations.
